It really bothers me when rich people outfit their planes with original masterpieces. Yachts tend to bother me much less as they don't tend to sink so quickly that you can't rescue valuables and yachts tend to do their best to avoid bad weather. Granted, the whole sea air thing isn't good for anything antique but I can live with it. Planes, on the other hand, tend to go down spectacularly when they really and truly break. Here's a pic from Donald Trump's 727 which he's unloading to upgrade. In the back there's a Renoir and what might be a Sisley in the foreground. Ignoring the gauche upholstery for a second, it seems to me rather reckless to fly around the world carrying such world treasures. There was a time when the rich would buy pieces like this and just stick them in a house or two and carry them around, hanging them with the full intention of keeping them protected and safe; an attitude that buying a masterpiece meant that you were simply the current custodian. To treat it so blithely as to keep it in such a high-risk place as a plane strikes me as terribly selfish. I'm reminded of the Japanese man who bought a version of Renoir's Bal au Moulin de la Galette and then promptly announced that he loved it so much that he'd have it cremated with him. After an enormous uproar he eventually changed his mind about that with the excuse, "I didn't know it would upset people so much." I wonder if Trump is just that clueless or just that smug. The man's not stupid so I really can't imagine it's ignorance either.
